Describe Your Event

Warning, this event was expired!

Details of the event will continue to evolve as we get closer to August with considerations for the unknown impact of state and municipal regulations related COVID-19. There may be some changes from the last time we were swimming together to make the swim safe and compliant for all involved. All changes will be reflected on the website and information will be e-mailed out to participants.

2020 was certainly a year unlike any other. For a fundraiser that held its inaugural swim in the midst of a hurricane, we know how to roll with the punches. For 2020, we pivoted to a virtual swim, sold T-shirts of socially distant ducks, and ensured Yummy Mummy brownies were still available for all and raised $90,000 for Compassionate Care ALS. Thank you all for your generous support of the 2020 virtual 10th Annual David’s Old Silver Swim.

We all missed gathering last year at Old Silver Beach to splash, swim, and earn those scallop shell medals, and we look forward to seeing all of you back on the beach for the 2021 event.

David’s resilience, despite these trying times, is as strong as ever. He still signs his letters, “Swinging for the fences.” With your help, that optimism and determination will continue on.

We look forward to seeing you on the beach. Keep swinging for the fences, living large, and dreaming big!
